BREITBART — As South Carolina’s Post and Courier Deanna Pan reports via twitter: “Gowdy notes that Rubio has higher Heritage ratings than Jeff Sessions and Rep. Steve King (R-IA)
“There is no one more conservative than Marco Rubio.’”
Jeff Sessions has been the fiercest opponent of Sen. Rubio’s open borders trade and immigration agenda. By contrast, in 2013— at a time when illegal minors were continuing to pour across the border — Gowdy delivered a blanket pardon to the world’s alien youth to enter the country illegally. Gowdy even likened illegal immigration to a child harmlessly wandering into a neighbor’s yard: “When children wander into neighborhood yards, we don’t call that trespassing.”
Interestingly, Marco Rubio is not the only champion of large-scale immigration that Gowdy has spoken highly of in the past. As USA Today reported in 2013, Gowdy seemed to have developed a close bond with open borders advocate Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), who previously said that his “only one loyalty” is to the immigrant community. “In separate interviews, Gowdy and Gutierrez gushed about their mutual respect and trust,” USA Today wrote.
“I think some things just happen because it’s meant to be,” Gutierrez reportedly said of his relationship with Gowdy. “The chemistry is there.”
Their mutual admiration for one another appears evident in this 2013 exchange during a Congressional hearing [the relevant portion begins 40 seconds into the below clip]:
